I know it is an old joke, but....

Will this be "The Steel Wheelchair Tour"?

I may have to go...

I dunno about that...reading in front of fireplace with the dogs is one of my all time favorites.

In fact, I think I was at a Ratdog show when I said to myself, "I could be home with the dogs reading right now, by the fireplace, instead of being here" and then I left.

Just saying...

I don't have a fireplace anymore(and when I was younger reading is not what I enjoyed in front of the fireplace but that is a totally different story), but do find that a good book can sometimes be preferable to a loud, crowded venue. Rowdy crowds are not my idea of a good time anymore. Maybe the Stones crowd will be too old to get rowdy...i know I am.

I think we're showing our age, but I too was thinking, I like reading in front of the fireplace pretty well.
But if the Stones tour again we'll definitely go. They sure do put on a show.

Guess they call that an epiphany.

OTOH, we do owe the Stones something big. It was Mick Jagger (pretty sure) who decided that he didn't hope he died before he got old. I remember something about them focusing more on blues musicians than rockers. Blues dudes were allowed to get old and be respected unlike rockers who were supposed to eventually grow up and like Andy Williams or Chopin or something. So thank you for all those old rockers still chunking along and keeping the music industry alive. :)

They Might Be Giants did a song called I Hope I Get Old Before I Die:

"And I think about the dirt that I'll be wearing for a shirt
And I hope that I get old before I die"

Don't know if that was what you were thinking of, or whether they were influenced by Jagger's remark.

I think it may have been Pete Townshend...
